The trend for alfresco dining has gone one step
further with the alfresco bar and nightclub. Vodka brand Smirnoff was
the first to kick off the trend with its amazing inflate-portable
bar/club. This go anywhere comfort zone is comprised by a number of inflatable cubes to create theoverall effect
of a portable bar/chill out zone. The design brief was simple, create a
cool image. Nothing cooler than ice is there? It's not all aesthetics
however, the design must be wind resistant, water proof and with hold a
large number of occupants. It's translucent appearance, invites
the creativity of light shows to radiate through the bar at night. For
the funkiest bar on the go, just add ice!
If you're not on Smirnoff's touring list get to Berlin instead where the new open air club Kubik
is sending local temperatures skywards.
near Berlin's river Spree, Kubik's modular design literally glows in
the dark, with dozens of conventional 1000-litre water tanks used
to create a temporary installation. On the weekends the tanks double as
glowing DJ booths, filled with some of Europe's best record spinners on
a mission to keep clubbers firmly on the alfresco dance floor.
